Commissioner Palmer Hopes to Shut  All American Fruits and Vege-  .  tables Out of Kootenay.  son  completing  R. R. Palmer of the agricultural  department at Victoria, who has  been appointed a special commissioner to confer with the Canadian  Pacific railway authorities in relation to freight rates on farm products and co-operate with them with  a view to adjusting differences  which may exist for the purpose of  promoting the sale of British Columbia produets in the province, is  registered at the Hotel Phair.  Mr. Palmer has beeu through the  Okanagau districts and from Nellie will go to Rossland, thus  his trip over the producing sections of the-Okanagan  and the districts whicli he looks  upon as its legitimate market for  farm products and fruits.. In speaking of his mission ���������Mr."* Palmer  said the Canadian Pacific railway officials had issued a new  .'tariff which in his opinion  'compares'favorably with the tariffs  over American roads from United  States sources of supply to Kootenay points and the chief work now  " before him lay in the direction of  Acquainting tlie British Columbia  producers with the requirements of'  qhe Kootenay market. "With  respect to tlio potato market, Mr.  Palmer said- tlie Okanagan producers now had an advantage of  $5 per toil and they already controlled the Kootenay market to  such an extent that the competition  among themselves had reduced  potato quotations lower than there  was any necessity for. .In the-  matter of fruits the -Okanagau'  -���*��� producers had'the advantage ot* Lhe  v duty as well as freedom from  government inspection to whicli all'  , American imports had to submit..  Despite these" advantages, however, ' the' Americans did  about nine-tenths of the trade,  but Mr. Palmer expected to bring  About a very great, change in this  respect. Among tho reasons which  ho assigned for tho failure of the  Okanagan i people to control tho  fruit business of Kootenay was the  fact that although much has   been  - heard of Okanagan fruits, the fruit  growing industry was as yet in its  infancy.    Tho  result  of   this   was  - that there was not the supply to  draw upou  and jobbers  preferred  ,   to deal with Spokane, from   which  point   mixed   shipments   of    fruit  could be assembled, which was out  =i^=of=the=qu��stioii=iii=the^Okan;igans=  The advantage which Spoknno had  over the Okanagan in the matter of  telephonic and railway.communication,  was  also   an  important factor,    but      conditions      in      this  respect   would    bo    quito    equalized     by     tlib   building    of   the  {proposed extension of tho Shuswap  .&   Okanagan    railway    into    the  Boundary.    This would  enable the  fruit  growers  of tho Okanagan'to  Jay down fruit in Nelson  twenty-  four hours earlier, wliich was a very  important factor.*   As to the existing   express    rates   ou   Okanagan  fruit,   however,   Mr.   Palmer   said  there was no ground for complaint,  ns the rates were lower than existing rates anywhere in the United  States.    In short, the  express company  and^tlio railway eompany as  well appeared to be only too anxious  to do all in their power to facilitate  fii-adc.   Another drawback from the  Okanagan fruit growers' point of  view   which   Mr.   Palmer  touched  ���upon  was  the limited   crop.    The  result of this  was  that  Okanagan  ^growers    felt   it     incumbent     to  market'  every   pound'   of   :fruit.  The   effect    of   this   in   the" past  had beeu that  Okanagan  growers  did not select their fruit,  much  of  it t.hat should  have  been  rejected  having been forwarded to the Kootenay market along  with  the good  fruit.    By   this   means  the  Okanagan growers, while they increased  their tonnage, reduced their quality  so that they virtually received  less  money   for a  larger   quantity of  fruit than they would have received  fiom tho smaller but selected quantity.     An    understanding   of   the  market  would  remedy  this,  however, oven  if the  matter did  not  right itself with the increased pro  duct, and another favorable sign  was the action of the fruit growers  in. getting evaporators by which  the culled fruib could be used up.  Mr. Palmer", said his attention  had been directed to an article in  the Nelson Miner, which attributed  the difficulties of the Okanagan.  agriculturists to the discrimination  practiced by the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company "in "its freight  rates. This, Mr. Palmer said, was  evidently written under a. misapprehension which he understood  had been i-einoved. The chief  difficulty had been more a matter  of railway facilities, and a failure  on the part of the agriculturalists  to appreciate the requirements of  the market. The building of the  ^railway from Midway to the  terminus of the Shuswap & Okanagan would afford Ofianagan an  entrance into the Kootenay market,  and he had every reason to believe  that as a result of this conference  between the horticulturists and the  transportation company's officials,  the farmers of the Okanagan would  be so brought into touch with the  requirements and possibilities of  the market that they would dominate it to the exclusion of the  American farmers and'fruit growers,  both as to fruits and agricultural  produets of all kinds. \  In the course ��of his labors  throughout the province Mr.  Palmer is brought into direct contact with the mercantile interests,  and he does not hesitate' to say  that, from interviews he has had  with Nelson's w holesale, merchants,  audi from what he has observed  himself, Nelson has experienced less  of dull times than any city in the  province. In his opinion Nelson  wTas started right, and from the  first'its commercial interests were  in good hands. lie appreciates the  fact that it is the natural as well  as the actual distributing center  for a very large territory. In his  opinion, however, it will have a  contest on its hands for the Boundary trade when a more direct line  is afforded to the coast, but any  such contest does not necessarily  mean that Nelson's merchants will  be driven out. They will have the  advantage/of established trade" re:  lations, aiid the maintenance of this  advantage must necessarily depend  upon the freight rates created; by  the new-order of things.  MRS. M'KINLEY IS BETTER  Surprises the Physicians.  San Francisco, May 17.���Tho  news from the bedside of Mrs. McKinley this morning was more  hopeful. - At 8:45 a.m. secretary  Cortelou gave out a bulletin announcing that Mrs. McKinley had  passed a restful ' night and appeared very much improved over  her condition of yesterday and last  night. The first official notice  given out since 9 o'clock last night  FIVEDOLLAR ORE CAN BE MINED  And Smelted at a  Proflf in British Columbia.  came as a relief not only to those  within the residence, but also to  the band of waiters outside.  Through the long hours of the  f��Bgy night a score of newspaper  reporters and half a score of hotel  men walked about the houso or  stood in sheltered doorways. Not  a single light was shown in any part  of the house except a faint glow in  tlio sick room and in tlio telegraph  room, where a corps of telegraphers  and stenographers wero kept busy  until the early hours of the morning receiving and transmitting  official telegrams over a direct wire  to Washington.  Henry T. Scott left the house at  7:30 looking cheerful and relieved.  In;response to inquiries as to the  patient's condition ho said: "I feel  greatly gratified and relieved at  Mrs. McKinley's condition this  morning. She has passed a restful  night and this morning called for a  cup of toffee. When it was served  she remarked to the "president aud  the nuiso that theipup in which it  w as served was not as largo as she  -had been used tb.* "In view of these  facts I consider her greatly improved and that she will continuo  to improve from now ou."  When postmaster-general Smith  called on the president this morning he found the countenance of the  latter exceedingly jubilant. The1  president described the change in  Mrs. McKinley's condition as a  transformation. There was only a  slight tendency to the relapse that  had been so dreaded in the early-  hours of the moi'ning. She passed:  safely through the crisis and awoke  bright and cheerful. She was  allowed to wash her hands and  asked for food.  If such an assertion had been  made live years ago, that five-dollar  ore could be mined and smelted at  a profit in this country? the person  making tne assertion would have  been laughed at as a dreamer. Yet  that is what is actually being done  today in'the Boundary country. "A  number of Nelson men have recently  been oven at Grand Forks and  Greenwood,.';, and on their return they i said they were surprised at what is actually being  accomplished near these towns.  The Granby smelter at Graud Forks  and the Dominion Copper Company's smelter at Greenwood are  both up-to-date, iu every respect.  There is no needless handling of  ore, and one man does as much as  four do in the old-fashioned plants.  -������ ��� -��� .       i't ��������������� r  One of these gentlemen,, who has  had considerable experience around  mines and smellersf ventured the  assertion that the cflfet of smelting  ores at either GiSiud Forks or  Greenwood was not -^n excess of $2  a ton. He says the/;pre is handled  automatically and that the charge  is made   up" of ore,- and coke, * no  fluxes being needed.-C- The percent-  U'.  is/small, his. esti-  l/v. ,  being 10 per cent.   If this is  age of coke used  mate  a statement'of fact ji is n.o wonder  that Paul Johnson ;'cau smash records in tonnage smelling in twenty-  four hours. At .his smelter at  Greenwood little more is done than  dump ore into the ,'furnace, and it  smelts  itself,  nothing  more  being  needed than a little coke and the  ruddy glow from Paul's handsome  features.  The mines from which the- ore  comes are vast in extent, the veins  being in places, over one hundred  feet wide. It costs less than three  dollars a ton to mine and transport  the ore to the smelter, and fifty  cents a ton profit on the tonnage  that is now handled daily will pay  handsome dividends on the capital  invested���and the capacity of both  smelters is being doubled.  One of the Nelson men is quite a  large owner in Rossland properties,  and'he'believes that' the day is not  far distaut when he will reap a  profit iu working the mines iu which  he is interested, although the ore is  low grade, carrying on an average  about six dollars a ton in values.  NOBIE FIVE IS A BONANZA  A LEDGE THAT IS TWENTY-FOUR  FEET WIDE IN PLACES.   .  One of the Most  Important   Strikes  That Has Seen Made in the.  Slocan for Some Time.  The recent flurry in Noble Five  stock, which caused a rise of several  points in that security, was a mystery to the many, but the few who  "were in the secret knew that the  revived confidence in the mine was  founded on good and sufficient  reasons, and they hastened to avail;  themselves ,of the .opportunity to  secure large blocks \ of stock ..at',  favorable prices.  ��� In March the miners of- the Noble  Five, who had been patiently working their way towards the discovery, struck tho main ledge of the  famous Last Chance, wliich, it is  now known, traverses tho Noble  Five property for its entire length.  This fact had long been the confident belief of the manager, George  B. McDonald, but it then became a  certainty, much to the satisfaction  of that gentleman and all concerned.  Since the discovery of the continuation of the Last Chance ledge,  all efforts of the management have  been concentrated on the new find,  but in this  they have been  some-;  what   lmndicapped,^as^jJLJs^^onlyL  "througirthe courtesy of the, Last  Chance people'that they have been  enabled to utilize their good luck.  The    management    of    the    Last  Chance havo  been kind enough to  allow the Noble Five in in ere  to use  ono   of   their   tunnels  to  develop  their   find���a case almost   unparalleled in  tho history of   mining.  While this concession enabled the  Noble Fivo to test the value of their  find and prosecute work upon it, the  fact that both gangs of miners are  using the same tunnel and the same  tracks   for   taking, out ore, necessarily limits the. work of the Noble  Five almost to a minimum. Enough  has been,,done, however* to satisfy  the   management    that   they   are  really iu   the   great, Last Chance  ledge and that vall>they.have to do  is to   tap.it by a tunnel  on their  own  ground to secure a repetition  of the history.of the Last" Chance.  The   ledge-,thus   far   encountered  varies from four to 24 feet in width  and carries very satisfactory values.  In order to  utilize it to the fullest  extent it is proposed to  extend one  of the present Noble Five tunnels  for 325 feet.   This will strike the  Last Chance ledge ,at";a depth of  000 feet from the surface and afford  a chance of working it in all directions.    The  Noble Five havo 1200  feet of this ledge on their property,  and   when   it   is   considered   how  many  tons   of   rich  ore  the Last  Chance    have   taken    from   their  portion   of the  1050   feet,   it will  easily be realized what a bonanza  the Noble Fivo have secured.    The  directors of the Noble Five held a  meeting at Victoria on Wednesday,  says the  Colonist  of that  city, at  which Mr. McDonald reported progress and submitted plans for future  operations.  WILL NOT PAY! INSURANCE  JUSTICE   DRAKE   DELIVERS   HIS  JUDGMENT.  Dismisses E. C. Cordinsly's vA~ction to  Recover From the Scottish Union  Company Witli Costs.   -  Mr. justice Drake delivered judgment   yesterday   in   the   case, of  Cordingly   et al   vs. i;the Scottish  Union Insurance Company, giving  a verdict for the defendant company    with    costs.-.'against    the  plaintiffs,   Cordingly''and   Purdy,  but not against R.>W7Day, assignee  for   the   creditors   of^-thej-Nelson  (Furniture Company^'With.respect  to the other insurance cases  growing out of the same fire it is likely  that   some   arrangement   will   be  arrived   at   as plaintiff's   solicitor  announced that he would submit a  proposition to the defendants.  The  victory of the insurance company  in the first case came as a surprise  to most people, it  being  generally  thought  that  the insurance companies would be required to pay at  least   their own   appraisement of  the Joss, which  was  in  the neighborhood  of $1500.-. The estimated  loss  of   the  plaintiffs  was  in  the  vicinity of $4000, and it-is said that  an offer to compromise1 was- made  by the insurance companies upon  the basis of $2000.;  ALBANIANS CALL IT MURDER  KILLING  OF  TWO   CITIZENS  THE  MILITIA.  BY  Yesterday's Developments in the Great  Street  Railway   Strike���Cars  Running Under Guard.  Peters' Damage Suit.  The case of Peters vs; the Tramway Company was then taken up.  This is a suit for damages brought  by the motorman who lost au arm  as the result of the accident attending the opening, of the tramway  company's, service. The right to  challenge was freely exercised in  selecting the jurors. H. R. Bellamy,  the first man drawn, waspromptly  challenged. Hamilton Byers aud  W. AV. Beer wero accepted. Then  James Bannerman, W. P. Tierney,  R. M. Bird and Percy Criddle were  drawn and challenged. The next  three were Fred Irvine, N. T.  Macleod and W. J. Wilson. They  were accepted. II. E. Macdonnell  was drawn and challenged. Then  followed J. F. Weir, Robert Robert-'  son and Peter Lamont and the jury  was complete.  In opening his case the plaiutiff's  counsel explained that the action  was not brought under the Employers' Liability Act because the  period within which ' the ", action  could be so brought had expired,  during which time the-plaintiff had  been retained in the employ of the  defendant company.  The hearing of the case will  probably occupy two or three days.  The C. P. R. station at Slocan  Junction was burned late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. The building was totally  destroyed.  "A man is known by the company he keeps," says the proverb.  Of course he is: no man can associate with people very long without  their getting next to him.  . Albany,   May   17.���E   Le   Roy  Smith, the prominent citizen and  clubman, who was shot by a squad  .of the Twenty-third regiment, died  shortly after making a statement  to his  clergyman exonerating' the  guardsman from the killing.    Mr.*  Smith is 00 years of age.   He leaves  a; wife, and::-three children....Two!  prominent   citizens dead, no  cars  running   and  ominous   threats   of  violence- if   an   attempt   is   made  today to continue armed running  of cars is what Albany awoke to  this     morning.       The-   beautiful  weather made no favorable impression on the people.  Gloomy-browed  groups of men stood about street  corners and discussed the death of  the two inoffensive citizens.    "Murder" was the most frequently used  term and some of the city papers  use the same epithet.   The gloom  extends even to the soldiery in the  camp of the Twenty-third regiment.  Very general regret was expressed  this morning over the  two "deaths.  Major-general   Roe,  brigadier-general Oliver aud general Barnes  of  =the=Twenty-third=regimentr"whielr  did     the    fatal   shooting,   while  regretting   it,   said   this   morning  that the soldiers  were ordered  to  stop   mob   violence and   shoot   if  attacked, and the only safety for  peaceable   citizens   was    to   move  away at the first indications of disorder.    Up to 9  o'clock this morning no effort   had been made to  move cars and there was no activity manifested at the Quail street  barn, from which all the cars operated yesterday were sent out.  The company's line, on" Clinton  avenue has been cut again and  other breaks are reported from  different points of the city, so that  the first move of the day will  probably be made with the tower  and repair wagons.  It was 10:15 before the road began  to operate its cars this morning and  then several cars were sent down  the hill and up to North Albany.  Tho street corners were rather  deserted, but the soldiers in the  cars, with their loaded guns resting  on their knees, watched closely as  the corners were passed. The  Second and Twenty^third regiments  had their men out krguard all the  important points the same as yesterday. The company announces  that before nightfall overy lino  within tho city limits will be in  operation, but the word operation  of service means that the cars will  be running with a guard and without any fares being rung up, for tho  public is afraid to ride.  Here is the strike situation at 0  o'clock today: A delegation of  strikers will meet the executive  committee of the board of directors  of the United Traction Company  for the purpose of discussing a  settlement of the strike. Both  sides will enter the conference in a  "The envoy summoued~aTtri^of"Rus-  sian and French specialists who declared that the queen was not  enciente and an official notification  to this effect was today sent to the  diplomatic corps. "The diagnosis of  the doctors, however, does not seem  to have satisfied the royal family  and two specialists have been summoned from Vienna and Bucharest  to report on the case. Costly gifts  have been pouring into Belgrade  from the people of Servia iu anticipation of the expected event.  London, May 17.���The Servian  scaudal grows still more inexplicable. According to the Vienna  correspondent of the Daily Telegraph the doctors attending queen  Draga have issued a bulletin declaring that "the case is peculiar  and it is not impossible that the  queen is only in the fourth month  of her pregnancy."  The Vienna papers last night reported that queen Draga was seriously ill, with several physicians in  consultation and that the case  would require protracted treatment.  From*1 Servia comes all kinds of  rumors. According to one story a  revolution is imminent and Russian  agents are inciting the population  against the dynasty.  Another report says, king Alexander is said to be furiously angry,  and if he is able to prove that the  queen, instead of being, as ib is  alleged, a victim to hysteria, has  intentionally deceived him, he will  divorce and banish her from the  country and possibly will himself  abdicate.  The greatest indignation has been  aroused in Belgrade by a report  that queen Draga failed in a deliberate attempt to foist upon the  king the child of her sister.  spirit tinged with conciliation and  it is possible that there will be a  truce and peace. The innounce-  raeut of the conference came early  this afternoon in a letter addressed  by president Robert Pruyn of the  United'Traction Company to mayor  Blessing. The directors of the  traction company were in session  for three hours at the office of their  attorneys and mayor Blessing and  corporation counsel Andrews spent  some time with them.  It is unofficially stated that the  chief difficulty that bars the way  to a settlement is the policy of the  company toward the strikers for  violence and overt acts. The strikers to a unit insist that if they go  back it must be in a body, while  the company object to reemploying men who have injured then-  property or assaulted their new  men. President Prnyn and superintendent McNamara have received  warning to beware of personal violence and both move through the  streets with .body guards. Everything is quiet and everybody awaits  the result of the conference. Cars  are being operated under guard and  there has been no demonstration  against them.  No settlement has been reached  iu the great street railway strike.  After hours of conference the  officials of the United Traction  Company and the committee from  the organizations of the strikers  adjourned without changing tho  situation. The compauy will proceed to run its cars tomorrow on  every line within the city limits',  with the aid of a military force  that numbers 3000 men. The only,'  step towards settlement that was'  made was the appointment of��� a  committee from the common council to ' arbitrate,' aud - the adoption"  of a resolution declaring that if a'  settlement is not effected by Monday night the council shall revoke  the franchise of the eompany. The  company declares that such action  , would be of no effect, as the railway now has a vested right that  -cannot be taken away from it.   '  The reason there is no settlement  tonight *" is''because the company,  refuses    to    discharge-'the--meni  =brought-from.other. points-to- take-  strikers'places. '-  A SOMEWHAT MUDDLED CASE  In Servia's Eoyal Household.  London, May 17.���A remarkable  state of affairs in the Servian royal  family was revealed by official telegrams from Belgrade today. The  Vienna newspapers in February announced the accouchment of queen  Draga, who was married August  3, 1900. This was published iu the  Bunteras. Recently the same paper  reported she was about to bo confined. As the czar was one of the  attesting witnesses of the marriage,  he sent a special Russian envoy to  investigate   the   strange    rumors.

There can be no.such  thing as dull times in a country  that has millions insight.  Nelson will celebrate Dominion  Day this year as she never celebrated it before. She has more  people and more money than at any  time during her career, and she has  athletic young men who are willing  to compete with the world in any  game or sport in which muscle,  skill, and endurance are factors.  There was a rumor in circulation  yesterday that word had been received from Montreal to the elfect  that work on the Lardo railway  would be resumed at once. If tlio  rumor proves to be true, the news  will be received with joy by quite  a number of the people .who are  ���  not   looking   for  sub-contracts  on  the road.    Who Will Suffer Most?  The following from the Argonaut  of San Francisco, dated May  13th,  should be read carefully  by both  employers and employees in Nelson,  and more especially by the clerks  of the town, who are said to be dissatisfied at the result of the TJiurs-  - day closing movement: The Argonaut says: "The Argonaut remarked  some weeks ago that the aggressive  attitude of the labor  unions in San  Francisco had gradually forced the  employers of labor into au attitude  of self-defence.   "We said at that  time that the Employers' Association were beginning witli a fund of  fifty thousand dollars;  that they  meant business;  that they  would  raise more money if needed;  tliat  they would light those  who fought  them,   whether   labor    unions    or  newspapers.    The Examiner  made  the comment that these statements  ���were���deliberately=untruthful.^=lf=  the Examiner thought we did not  know what we were talking about  it was never more mistaken iu its  life, and   it has been mistaken  a  great many times.   For its further  information wo will now  say  that  the  employers'  fund  has   reached  oue   hundred and  fifty   thousand  dollars, and that the employers ai;e  more determined than ever.   The  workingmen who read  the Examiner are surprised at  that journal's  lukewarm   attitude   toward     the  labor   unions,    but    they    cannot  understand   it;   they   may   easily  understand it when  they are told  that the Examiner is now afraid of  the   Employers'  Association.   The  employers   have   made    no    overtures   to   the   labor    unions,   but  tlie unions  have finally determined  to seek for a conference through  mayor Phelan.   The result of this  is as yet unsettled.    If the labor  unions precipitate a geueral  strike,  as their leaders threaten, the result  will  be  most disastrous for them.  There never was a time when employers in San Francisco were  so  thoroughly organized as now. There  never was  a time when they Ave re  so eager   to   raise   funds   as now.  There never was a time when San  Francisco was so filled with strangers   as now.    In the first half of  this year over 50,000 men are being  mustered   out in San Francisco ���  young soldiers who are members of  every trade   and craft.    The   low  colonist rates from the east brought  20,434 strangers  to San Francisco  over   the   Southern   Pacific alone;  probably one-half "as   raauy  moro  came by the Santa Fe.   This city  is   no   longer   the   isolated   point  that   it  was    a   few    years   ago.  If the organized trades inauguate  PAPER  We're, pretty'certain to suit you  in Wall Papers.

To the employers it will merely  mean a falling off in their profits. It  would be well for newspapers posing as friends of the -workingmen  to warn them of their unwisdom.  Hithertq these journals have always egged on strikes, to make sensational news-matter. Now they  are silent through., fear of the Em-  ��� ployers' Association. But however  ignoble tbeir motive, let them dissuade the labor unions' from a general strike. The Argonaut holds no  brief for the Bmployers' Association.  It knows that waiters working ten  hours a day for seven days a week  work too hard"and too long. No  white-man ought to work so. long.  But for the reason that we feel for  and are "friendly to the working-  men, we urge them not to precipitate a general strike. They will  suffer most.

Lord Kitchener has a laconic way  with him. Not many weeks ago a  company of newly arrived Yeomanry with a company of Colonials  were detailed off to capture a Boer  laager. A friendly Boer volunteered  to show the way and left them,  -whenjvithia-sight���of-thB-^fifefl-of-i  the Boer laager, to make the assault  as soon as dawn appeared. Dawn  came only to find the Britishers  themselves surrounded by Boers.  There was one gap in the cordon,  and for this gap the Yeomanry,  made, their officer at their head,  leaving their Colonial comrades  with the guns to tackle the Boers as  best they could. In due course the  Yeomany came to general Clements'  camp and he .wired to lord Kitchener : "Company your Yeomanry  turned up; what shall I do with  them?" The reply was almost immediate : "Keep thera as far from  me as they kept from the Boers."  Found Guilty of Murder.  Nkw York, May 17.���Detective  J. Desmond of Brooklyn today was  found guilty of manslaughter -in  the first degree, with a recommendation to mercy, for the fatal  shooting of James McMullen in the  hitter's home at Bath beach on  December 10th last. On the morning of the shooting Desmond was  on his way to his home, whieh was  located opposite to the home of .the  MeMullens. Reaching McMulleu's  gateway he found McMullen seated  on the front stoop apparently  asleep. He awakened him and  accused him of boing there wrongfully. There was a fight and during  it McMullen was killed. Desmond's  defence was that the shooting was  accidental.  xxxxx]:xxxxxxxxtxzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx::xxxxxx:xx}xxxxx;  G-.TS a.:n id  SCOTTISH CONCERT  OPERA HOUSE, MAY 20th.

Nkw York, May 17.--The body  of a man found late last night in a  house on Ninth avenue has been  identified as that of the Rev. Dr.,  Phillips of the Philisophic church,  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, who recently had a conference with. J.  Pierpont Morgan in reference to  the threatened strike in the iron  and coal regions of Pennsylvania.  The coroner says that the identification can hardly be questioned, as  papers found on the body seem to  prove it. The police are working  on the theory of murder. Kirk  Stanley, a massage operator in  whose rooms the body was found,  is under arrest as a suspicious person. A great deal of mystery surrounds the case. Decomposition  had advanced so far when the body  was discovered that a cursory examination was not sufficient to  reveal the cause of death and au  autopsy will be held.  Kirk Stanley was arraigned iu  the police court and wa9 remanded  to the custody of the coroner. He  refused to make any statement.  Hazei.ton, Pennsylvania, May  17.���Father Phillips had been away  from Ilazelton for about two weeks  on a vacation. Father Phillipps  was pastor of St. Gabriel's church  of this eity. He was born in 1851  at Hawley, Wayne county, Pennsylvania. Recently the twenty-fifth  anniversary of his elevation to the  priesthood was celebrated here and  a large number of priests and Catholic dignitaries from the surrounding country came to Hazelton to do  him honor.  -New York, May 17.���Coroner  Bausch committed Stanley to the  Tombs in default of $10,000 bail to  await the result of the autopsy on  the body of father Phillips. The  coroner said that Stanley answered  questions put to him only after  long meditation. Stanley told him  that lie and the priest had b-j-  come deathly ill while in the room  with two girls and that the priest  had given him a powder and' taken  one himself. This helped them  bftth., He did not remember the  circumstances under which the girls  left the room. Stanley paid he  went out for a walk, leaving the  priest iu a rocking chair smoking a  pipe and evidently recovered from  his illness. When he returned the'  priest was not there.  Coroner Bausch found the back  =of^father=PhillipsHiead=iira^pool=t��f"  blood, showing that a hemorrhage  had taken place, but he could find  no blood on the collar or shirt. The  face was almost black, but the body  was not as discolored as the face.  The man was apparently dressed  for the street. Stanley was advised by his counsel not to answer  any questions and would say  nothing.  The autopsy on the body of  father Phillips was completed at  3:15 p.m. Coroner Bausch announced  that no marks of violence had  been found on the body. The conditions of the organs showed that  tlio man had suffered from chronic  nephritis and fatty liver. The  coroner said that owing to the suspicious circumstances surrounding  the case it was advisable to have  the vital organs analyzed and they  were giv*ju to professor Witthaus,  an expert chemist. Coroner's physician O'llanlon says theire was no  sign of alcohol in the dead man's  stomach. A dram of dark fluid, the  character of which was not determined, was found in the stomach  and it is tin's fluid that will require  analysis. Dr. O'flanlon also said  that either Bright's disease, fatty  liver or fatty heart, from which the  dead priest suffered, might have  caused death.  Bricklayers Locked Out  Nkw York, May 17.���Between  15,000 and 25,000 bricklayers in the  employ of contractors who are  members of the Mason Builders'  Association were locked out at noon  today.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  Alex Lucas, who is to succeed  mining recorder Cliipman, left for  Kaslo yesterday.

There were several washouts on  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway south of Ymir, but trains will  probably be running by tonight.  "^ The Cottonwood Smith creek  freshet carried away a portion of  the city's real estate at tlie corner  of "Carbonate and Railway streets.  V E. Ferguson & Company have  under construction a fireproof  cellar 42 x 20. t It is being constructed to overcome an insurance  rate of $6.00.  All things come to those who can  wait. The West Kootenay Power  & Light Company is purchasing  thousands of dollars' worth of supplies in Nelson.  The.freshet in Cottonwood creek  has subsided but the railway company is having a mattress constructed along the bank of the  creek to protect its yards.-  At the Methodist church tomorrow the pastor will preach at  both service?. Morning subject:  "Conference Aftermath." Evening:  "Sunday Sports or Midweek Half-  holiday.  John A. Turner, government  hgent, received word from constable  Forrester at Ymir that the North  Fork bridge near Erie bad gone  out. The Iliddeu creek and other  bridges were reported as safe.  Jerry Callahan, of Callahan &  Bogle, is ou a visit to Nelson, His  firm has a contract for taking out  logs iu Idaho for the Nelson Sawmill company. This year the logs  are being driven down the Kootenay river to the head of tlie lakp,  where they will be boomed and  towed to Nelsou. There are now  about two million feet of logs at  the landing.  A Rather Heavy Consignment.  ��An absurd statement appeared in  the write-up of one of Nelson's  leading houses in a publication that  was circulated iu town recently.  The Avrite-up stated that the firm  mentioned was unpacking a.carload  of Brunton's PatentPocket Transits,  a little instrument that ia used -by  miuing men in making preliminary  surveys. The transits weigh less  than a pound each.and sell for $25.  Estimating 30,000 to a carload tlie  value of the consignment would be  in the neighborhood of $750,000.  That firm must either have considerable capital or mighty good  credit.         Western Federation Convention.

To the Editor of Tho Tribune:  Being one of the merchants who  opposed the Thursday half-holiday,  I would suggest if we are to have a  weekly holiday to have it on Saturday, for the reason that very few  people from outside points come in  on Saturday to trade. Then all  the banks, government offices, law,  real estate, insurance offices, and  wholesale stores are closed, and if  the retail stores closed that day  everybody could have a good time  and if anyone over-exerted himself  or got a jag on he could rest on  Sunday. Then again if anyone  wished to take . a trip to outside  points he would have time to do so.  It is also on Saturday that outside  clubs, whether baseball, lacrosse or  football, come to town to play.  The half-holiday in eastern cities is  usually on Saturday, and it is certainly the most sensible from a  business standpoint, for it does not  interfere with trade in tho middle  of the week. The retail stores could  keep open Friday evenings instead  of Saturday ns at present. Trusting we could agree to that day for  our holiday, I am yours truly,  A; FfliBi,AN��,  DR. HALL MAKES HIS REPLY  To Recent Criticisms.  To the Editor of The Tribune: In  reading the report in your paper  this morning of the proceedings of  last night's meeting of the local  board of health I noticed several  inaccuracies in statements which  were made duriug the discussion,  and some of which I wish to correct, if you will allow me space.  The first one is re diphtheria at the  Club hotel, in which mayor Fletcher said it was first reported as  suspicious, but as soon as it was reported definitely it was quarantined in ten..minutes. Both eases  were reported by myself, and only  the once, not twice, as reported by  the mayor.  - In connection with the reporting  of suspicious cases mayor- Fletcher,  was reported as saying: "There was  no provision for reporting suspected cases,; but some doctors  seemed to.be under the impression  that the medical, health officer was  bound to go and examine every  suspicious case they * had oh their  hands. /.Personally-." he . said he  agreed with Dr. LaBau that it was  not part of his duties to examine  suspicious cases being treated . by  other physicians'. The act required'  the doctors to report Whether or  not they had cases of infectious  diseases."   ��  Iii reply to this I quote from the  Regulations of the Provincial Board  of Health, approved by order of his  honor the lieuteuant-governor-in-  council, dated June 30th, 1890, re.  scarlet fever aud diphtheria, suspected cases:  12. The medical health officer of evnry district,  or nny of his medical assistants, having received  Informal ion of a suspected case of sca'-let fever  or diphtheria, shall immediately inquire into Iho  facts, -Hither by consultation with the attending  physician o ��� by his own personal observation, or.  by both. If the characteristic symptoms are not  sufficiently developed at*, tin time of investigation, the medical health olllcer siiall keep tlio  case under his personal observation until Iho  true nature of thodiscaso is discovered. Until  tho lime has arrived when in tho opinion of the  medical health ofllcer all cause, for suspicion of  danger is pa��t,the Mnp'jotedca e shall bo isolated  and otherwise dealt wilh in tbo same manner as  prescribed for a case of scirlet fever or diphtheria. The persons living in the same house, or  who have heen in contact with the infected  patient, shall also be kept under observation.  It will be seen from- this, Mr.  Editor, that the "other doctors" are  nob as ignorant of their obligations  as some of the members of the  local board of ileal th.think them tb  be. My opinion is that if some of the  city's paid officials understood their  duties a little better,: and- would  live up to them, the city would be  saved a great'deaP'of expense and  many citizens' saved triable ��� and  sickness'.  I also resent his worship's remarks that "when one doctor was  appointed medical health officer the  other doctors wanted to jump on  him." This is not only untrue but is  degrading the dignity of the profession.   Very respectfully,  George A. B. Hall.  M'GILL STUDENTS  ARRIVE  And Visit the Smelter.  Dr. Adams aud his compauy of  McGill studeuts arrived in Nelson  yesterday iu their special car. There  are about, twenty students in the  party and they are putting in the  =six=weeks=couise4n=observing-prae-^  tical mining, whicli was recently  made compulsory at McGill. The  students travel in a tourist car, in  which they live, carrying their own  cook. That good arrangements  were made with the transportation  company is evidenced by the fact  that the six weeks' outing is made  by the students at a cost of $100  per head, including living expenses.  That tho boys are enjoying themselves goes without saying. When  they strike a mining camp the  students divide their forces and go  through the workings of the different properties under the guidance  of the professors, and when they return to the car something iu the  way of a lecture is given, after  which the students compare notes  on what they have seen. Yesterday they made a visit to tlie Hall  Mining and S,melting Company's'  smelter. From Nelsou they will go  to Rossland and the Boundary, and  upon their return they will visit  the Athabasca, and possibly the  Silver King mines. They will return ��� home over the Crow's Nest,  taking in the coal mines at Fernie  and probably the silver-lead mines  near Kimberley.  Another Diplomatic Problem.  London, May 17;���The Ewo incident of Tien Tsin on May 4, where  some German soldiers guarding a  German bridge across the Pei Ho  at the south end of the British concession there, fired on a British tug  of that name, wounding two of her  crew, after the vessel touched the  bridge which impeded river traffic,  is assuming a graver character.

JSTELSOIET  STORES   AT  s^k.isriD03sr  of the German commander's explanation the matter has been referred  to the British minister atPekin, sir  Ernest Satow, with the view of diplomatic action being taken. According to a dispatch from Pekin to  tho Loudon Times published today,'  after two of the Chinese^ crew had  been wounded (they have since  died) the remainder were arrested,'  taken to a German ' prison and  flogged. General Lome; Campbell  asked general von Lessen for an explanation of the "unwarrantable  act of brutality.".; Von Lesson's reply, which has just been received,  promising that the incident shall  not be repeated, at least so far as  as the use of arms is concerned, is  regarded as quite inadequate.  Resembles Delpit Case.  Montreal, May 17.���The court of  review gave judgment this morning  in a case much resembling the  famous Delpit case, inasmuch as the  marriage of two Catholics by a Protestant minister ' was held illegal.  Marguerite Durocher and Joseph  Degro eloped from Granby, Quebec,  and went to East Franklin, Vermont, where they were married by  Rev. E. Prouty, a Protestant  minister. ' They returned to Granby  and lived together some time.  Several years after the girl's mother  obtained from bishop-Moreau of St.  Hyaciuthe an ' ecclesiastical decree  declaring the marriage null and  void because performed by. a Protestant. The' courts were asked to  recognize the ecclesiastical decree,  but judge Lynch refused. An  appeal was taken to the.Lcourt of  review, which this morning unanimously reversed -Lynch's . decision.  It was held that the marriage had  nOfrbeen performed before a competent officer, who must be a parish  priestof one .of the parties.  .  . A Vancouver Suicide.  Vancouver, May 17.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���W. L.'Daggett,aged  27, committed suicide this morning  by drowning himself in False creek.  He left several letters to his friends  indicating that he was in debt and  was tired of discouragement, and  unable to secure work. He was a  V. M. C. A. worker and a prominent.  Baptist. His brother Ralph was  married last week and is still away  on his honeymoon tour.
